From Our Students
“I really appreciate the depth of your knowledge on the subjects of alchemy and aromatherapy, and the many years of experience you each brought to the course. The concepts of alchemy have always been somewhat elusive for me, and I’m so thrilled to gain some understanding of them with the support of aromatherapy.”
“I would describe this class [Aromatherapy & Medicine of the Soul] as an exploration of the anatomy of the psyche using botanical aromatics to guide and express one’s inner knowing.”
